Borbala is a fashion brand based in Budapest, focusing on upcycling and plastic recycling. We create one of a kind, experimental garments, and earrings from post-consumer plastic waste, leftovers, and second-hand clothes.  We deconstruct and regenerate second-hand clothes while pushing forward traditional techniques and DIY methods like patchwork, quilting or textile collage. Our aesthetic is spontaneous and colorful always playing around with the concept of old and new, waste and precious, traditional and contemporary. Besides production, we are hosting workshops at festivals and in schools to present our recycling methods and to raise awareness of plastic pollution. This season the brand participated at Budapest Central European Fashion Week for the third time.  Besides we presented our collections at several competitions like Arts of Fashion in San Francisco, Sangue Novo, International Young Designer Contest in Kijev,  and Lodz Young Fashion.
